    If it helps on the GS no one moved out of my way but on the GSA most people move before I have a chance to flash.

    Ooooer!

    Thanks for all the comments. Looks like I may have sold my GS TC today (subject to seeing the money). So full steam ahead. Looking at a Rallye Sport with Aluminium panniers for that dashing, rugged look

    I own an adventure and I was also loaned a GS and didn't like the GS at all, the GSA just has it all and the GS felt really thin and small to me, very twitchy and also just not big enough

    I am 6'1 and 18 stone though lol

    Or not, to spec a Rallye how I would have it, it's £700 more than an Exclusive.

    The expensive extras are dynamic ESA, cruise control, cornering abs and sat nav prep. Not too bothered about these but as and when I sell mine (derisory sum offered for mine as trade in) I will crunch the numbers.
    If you get the pillion pack or whatever its called you get normal seats, a standard GS screen and a centre stand! Don't think you get both screens without paying!

    I stand corrected on both counts Dave.

    I do not want to pay for top spec so looking to order the 'basic' Rallye Sport without the thrills. I rode an New Exclusive on Saturday and enjoyed riding it and whilst it looked very nice (not brown at all) it was just a bit high brow for little old me.

    If we all wanted the same thing life would be a bit dull.

    Actually Dave I think I'm right if you look at the link it says Rallye Sport - as Rallye PLUS.............

    It does say that, but I doubt it? Let us know what the dealer says?

    I admit I'm a bit cynical too. I will let you know.

    Interestingly there was one on the BMW stand at the Geneva car show today which had a standard screen and seats fitted

    Right the Rallye Sport does come with both seats, GS screen and center stand...... if you order them

    All the ones currently available at Motorrad UK appear not to have been spec' d with this option.

    I bought mine this afternoon. Rallye Sport with premium pack. I'm sooo excited

    I know I'm going to regret this, but here goes anyway...

    I have been reading posts and I am in the same boat with this thread...however...there are so many abbreviations...TC, LC, TU, etc. I can't make head or tail about all this. I have an Air cooled 2007 1200GS and love it, but am always trying to convince myself that the the GSA would have been better somehow. I was lucky though as my bike was bout with all of the GSA extra's (engine bars, grills, mudguard extensions, Mudsling, Satnav, full Luggage etc) very happy with it!

    Please can someone explain to this idiot what all the abbreviations mean?

    What in particular has made you come to the conclusion that the GSA is too unmanageable for you?
